You can Google "personality test" and end up with dozens of quizzes purporting to reveal your true personality, since we often can't determine our honest character traits on our own. It's understandable: I, for example, love to believe that I'm fantastic, two tons of fun, and a carefree spirit. In reality, I'm constantly stressed, I always think I left the stove on, and I'm pretty sure literally everyone is looking at me funny. But one quiz has officially caught my eye: the Cube Personality Test. What does the Cube Personality Test mean, and what do your results supposedly reveal about you? Let's take a deep dive and see what we can find out.
Before going any further, though, let me state what might be the obvious for some: This is just for funsies. You probably don't want to read too much into the questions or your answers, because there could be more than one factor influencing your responses; indeed, as far as I've been able to tell, there's no psychological research backing it up. It's pretty much a party trick, and according to some, might even just be a thing used to pick up chicks. Whomp, whomp. That said, though, I do mean what I said about the "for funsies" thing — because if we take quizzes like this with a pretty hefty grain of salt, they're rather entertaining.
In a nutshell, the Cube Personality Test uses a variety of objects, their own qualities, and their relationships with one another to supposedly unearth your own personality. The objects are pretty random and don't seemingly carry any obvious meaning. Where exactly can you go to take the Cube Personality Test? There are plenty of links online, but I used this video. It moves pretty quickly, probably because the creators want your immediate, honest answer, so if you have three minutes to spare, check it out. Then read on for the different parts of the quiz and what it all means.
I'll use my results as an example, so we can all see how weird I am. You're welcome.
First, The Test Itself:
Imagine, if you will, the following sequence of events and images in your mind. Keep track of all your thoughts as you go; no detail is too small.
The Cube Personality Test asks you to imagine yourself walking through the desert, and you encounter a cube. (Big surprise.) How big is the cube? What material is it made out of? And finally, how far is it from the ground?
Then, imagine that somewhere near the cube is a ladder. Where is it in relation to the cube, and what is it made out of?
Next to the cube and ladder is a horse. Is your horse wearing anything, like a saddle or reins? What's it doing?
Picture flowers in your desert. How many flowers do you imagine in your mind? Where are they in relation to the cube?
A storm starts a-brewin'. How close is it to the cube, ladder, horse, and flowers? Lastly, are you scared of the storm? (No judgment.)
Pretty easy, right? So, what does all of your answers mean?
And Now, The Meaning:
Brace yourselves. Cubes are coming.
The Cube Represents Your Ego
The bigger you imagined your cube, the bigger your ego. The smaller your cube, the smaller your ego. The material of your cube represents your openness with other people. Was your cube transparent? You're pretty open! The distance of your cube from the ground represents how grounded you yourself are. The closer to the ground, the more grounded you are.
My cube was small enough to fit in the palm of my hand, made out of rock, and was laying on the ground. So according to the Cube Personality Test, I have a small ego and I'm grounded, but I don't open up much to other people.
The Ladder Is About Your Friendships
The distance between the ladder and the cube tells you how close you are with your friends. If the ladder is actually leaning on the cube, your friends can lean on you for support. The stronger the material, the stronger the friendships.
My ladder was very far from my cube. (Boo.) But, it was made of wood. Is a wood ladder sturdy? Does it even matter, since my ladder was so far away from my cube? I don't even know anymore.
The Horse Reflects Your Relationships
Was your horse wearing reins or tied up? This means you like more control in a relationship. The wilder the horse, the wilder you like your relationships.
This one makes sense for me. My horse wasn't wearing anything, and I really like when my BF takes control of things. Also, my horse was sort of just chillin', tail swaying, neighing happily; sure enough, I like calm, chill, laid back relationships.
The Flowers Are Your Children
The more flowers you imagined, the more kids you want. The closer your flowers are to your cube, the more you're thinking about children.
This part left me mildly horrified. I imagined flowers as far as the eye could see, beginning right behind my cube. I. Do. Not. Want. Children. I believe my exact response was, "Oh dear God no." So, remember that whole "taking it with a grain of salt" disclaimer? It bears repeating.
The worse the storm (the closer and more out of control it is), the more stressed you are in your life right now.
This one, like my horse, was pretty accurate. My storm was right above my cube, ladder, horse, and flowers. I wasn't scared of it, but it was definitely a wild one. I've been feeling the stress lately, so the Cube Personality Test gets an A+ in the storm department.
What did your results show? Only you can tell. Good luck.
